About Teach English In China Ltd

Here at Teach English In China Ltd, our team of ex-foreign teachers has a passion for discovering China's rich culture and a desire to help others experience it for themselves. Since 2005, we have organised over 1000 teaching placements. Our experience and knowledge of living and working in China enables us to deliver a high-quality service to all of our candidates.

Living and working in China is a valuable experience that everyone should get the chance to do. We have teamed up with schools and organisations across China to provide a variety of programme options, giving you the chance to discover this fascinating country through the eyes of a local for a duration that best suits you. To find your ideal programme, visit our detailed programme guides on our website.

You don’t need any prior teaching experience or knowledge of Mandarin to apply for our programmes. Most of our teachers have no prior teaching experience, and our programmes are designed to ensure that you leave for China feeling confident, prepared and supported.

Training and Support

With Teach English in China, you’ll benefit from the support of an experienced team who are dedicated to supporting you before, during and after your placement.

Pre-departure, we offer visa application support, placement allocation services, access to our exclusive lesson plan library and networking events in London to meet up with other future teachers! Additionally, we organise an orientation day in London, where you will have a teacher training session, an introduction to Mandarin and you’ll meet other people who are on our programmes. This means you’ll head to China with a ready-built support network of people who are in the same boat.

If you attend our 2-week TEFL Training Camp in Beijing, you’ll have in-country support when you arrive to make sure everything runs smoothly. We enjoy staying in touch with all of our teachers so that we can hear about your amazing adventures in China and beyond.

Travel Opportunities

Working in a Chinese school will give you plenty of opportunities to travel both in China and further afield. In state schools, there is usually a month-long paid holiday for Chinese New Year. Additionally, you’ll benefit from having other days off throughout the year.

Your multiple entry work visa will let you explore Asia, and the generous salaries offered by your school will mean you’ll easily be able to save money to travel to destinations such as Zhangjiajie, Shangri-La, Guilin, Mongolia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar!

Career progression

Teaching in China is a valuable experience that opens up a range of possibilities and often leads people down interesting career paths. A large percentage of our alumni have gone on to do a second, third and even fourth year in China, either teaching or in a different industry. Others have returned to their home countries to begin exciting careers in finance, the public sector and management roles, to name a few.

We believe that our teachers are the foundation of our success and we attach great importance to providing each and every one of them, both past and present, the opportunity to expand their skill set, boost their CV and earn a bit of extra money by taking on part-time roles in writing and vlogging.

We place a high value on helping our teachers before, during and after their placements and use our large and knowledgeable alumni community to help our teachers to network, find new opportunities and keep in touch with all things China.
